You turned on the "way back" machine, nice video! Those four are almost 14 years old now, wonder how "peachey" they look? :)

I have some more I am going to post. Union Pacific uses their C44-9W's on low priority trains now such as unit rock trains. We get them on our railroad on the unit trains we receive every now and then. They are getting tired you can see where the CNW paint scheme is showing through in a few places. Most were built in the 1994 time frame.
